Application for Discharge

A Discharge is required by the Administrative Department of Strasbourg University when a student transfers to another university.

It attests that you owe nothing to the BNU, and will be issued if you have returned or paid for everything you have borrowed and that you have no outstanding debts (late return charges, inter-library borrowing fees, administrative costs, etc).

Once you have been sent a Discharge, you will not be able to use the BNU’s services again without first re-registering.

 The BNU takes part in inter-library borrowing ("PEB"), a service that allows a network of libraries in France and other countries to make and receive requests for the supply of documents (originals and photocopies).
